Fig. 1

Absolute maximal wall thickness, thickness-to-diameter ratio and thickness-to-IMT ratio of the CCA as function of the presence of CCA plaque. Values are presented as normal z-scores, based on the mean and SD of the thickness parameters for arteries without CCA plaques. Arteries with CCA plaques clearly have a significantly larger wall thickness. Normalized thickness-to-IMT has a wider distribution than maximal wall thickness and thickness-to-diameter ratio
